After crossing the Onyar river on a bridge made by Eiffel, or entering the Roman city walls gate, a magnetic feeling will take you to the narrow lanes of the charming El Call.
Strolling through Girona’s El Call, one of the best preserved medieval Jewish quarters in Western Europe, is a treat for your eyes and soul. Home to numerous philosophers, medicine doctors and poets, this community saw the birth of medieval Kabbalah, together with Narbonne and Barcelona.
Enter the romanesque public baths, with their frigidarium, tepidarium and caldarium and feel the sober atmosphere of such remote times.
The gothic cathedral, boasting a 22.98 m. broad central nave, has a small museum with a unique peace: the millennium old Creation tapestry, showing among others Jewish citizens and Jerusalem in the priceless embroidery.
The Jewish heritage Museum, located in a very well preserved complex of medieval buildings, patios and gardens, allows you to discover the 6 centuries long, deep track that the Jewish community left in the making and consolidation of medieval Catalonia and the Crown of Aragon.
